Currys has announced a further £13 million investment into store worker pay.

The electronic retailer’s store-based colleagues will now be able to earn on average £12.33 per hour, with top performers on £13.95 an hour on average, representing a 9.5 per cent increase in their hourly rate.

Additionally, Currys revealed a further boost to minimum pay rates, which will increase to £11.50 per hour, or £12.50 per hour in London.

Over the past three years, Currys has raised its minimum hourly pay by 29 per cent.

The company also announced an increase to hourly wage for around 10,000 store employees last March
“Our passionate and dedicated colleagues are what make Currys special, and we’re delighted to be able to offer them this latest pay rise,” said Paula Coughlan, chief people, comms and sustainability officer at Currys. “We’re continuing to put our money where our mouth is and invest in our most important asset: our people.”

Currys added that it is also continuing to invest heavily in building capability through an “extensive” programme of learning and development, which is designed to increase the skills and earning potential of its employees.
